SummaryUpdating the E911 Emergency Address allows you to implement changes to the physical address of a Digital Line. The same address will be used by 911 to trace the origin of a 911 call in the US.

The E911 address is the address used to send to Fire / Police / other Emergency Services teams when a 911 call is placed. It is a requirement to provide an accurate address to ensure a timely response in case of emergency. If a phone is moved physically to a new address, that information must be updated immediately.

NOTE: You can check your E911 or Emergency address by dialing 933 using your desk phone or RingCentral Phone for Mac or Windows (softphone). You will be able to hear the direct telephone number of the phone you are dialing from (not the phone set in the Outbound Caller ID), the address you are registered to, and whether you are registered to 911 or not. See Reserved Extension Numbers - Troubleshooting for more information.
